The Hike: From the park website description:

"Difficulty: Moderate; Distance: 3.8 miles  (+~2mi for Smokey Cr.) round trip

Mule Ears Overlook parking area, mile 15, Ross Maxwell Scenic Drive

This hike leads through the foothills of the Chisos Mountains, skirts Trap Mountain, and crosses several arroyos. Near the spring is an old rock corral. The spring itself is overgrown with shrubs, but ferns and cattails also grow there. Remember, no contaminating/bathing in backcountry springs."
